Serbian magazine investigating if Donald Trump interview a fake

first_imgNedeljnik said staff had been trying to interview Trump for more than a year.“The formal ways didn’t work, so we turned to Mr. Vladimir Rajčić, a Serbian born actor and producer who lives in the United States, and who offered us proof of being close to Mr. Trump’s running mate Mike Pence and offered to help us get this interview.”The magazine sent questions to Rajčić in September and “we waited patiently for the answers, knowing that a small country like Serbia isn’t high on the list of priorities in this prolonged and dirty campaign.Naslovna strana novog broja #Nedeljnik-a. Više na— Nedeljnik (@nedeljnik) October 13, 2016 A Serbian magazine that ran what it claimed was an interview with Donald Trump said in a statement late Thursday it may have been duped by people claiming to be close to the Republican presidential candidate.Nedeljnik on Thursday released excerpts from what it said was an interview with Trump conducted via Suzanne Ryder Jaworowski, a senior Trump adviser and his campaign manager for the state of Indiana.In a statement emailed in English to POLITICO and signed by “Nedeljnik,” staff at the magazine outlined what they said was the “full truth of what has happened and to give proof about the interview.” “We finally got them, signed by Suzanne Jaworowski, who works at the Trump campaign in the state of Indiana,” the magazine continued in its statement. “We checked her credentials and chose to believe a guy who sent us email correspondence and photographs.”Jaworowski, for her part, said Nedeljnik had fabricated the interview, in which the Republican nominee seemingly apologizes to Serbia for the 1999 NATO bombing campaign waged against it.Jaworowski said she recently met at a fundraiser a man of Serbian descent who insisted he was running to be president of the Balkan nation and who had expressed interest in supporting the Trump campaign. She passed his information along, she said, and posited her exchange with him may have led to what she called the false report of an interview.The magazine said: “We were told that Mr. Trump listened to our questions, that he was eager to get votes of Serbian Americans, especially in swing states. We have never been refuted, in 250 issues of Nedeljnik. Not a single false information found its way to our pages.”The magazine’s statement indicated staffers were not convinced the interview was faked.“It wouldn’t be the first time that Trump and his aides got caught in a lie,” the statement said. Also On POLITICO Srebrenica gets a Serb mayor By Valerie Hopkins Another option, according to the statement, is that the magazine was “hoaxed by Mr. Rajčić, although he remains adamant that the interview was genuine.” If that is the case, the magazine said it takes “all the blame,” and apologizes to readers. “We chose to believe a person who gave us all the proof that we asked, and we weren’t professional enough to doubt it.”By Friday morning, the online edition of the magazine had pulled its cover with a picture of Trump, a headline and two excerpts of him apologizing to Serbs for the 1999 bombing. In its place, a blank space, a headline, and the question: “Did Nedeljnik […] fall into the heart of the American election campaign in which everything is allowed?”The announcement posted on the magazine’s website includes two photographs, one of Rajčić with Pence and of him with Jaworowski. It also includes a screen shot of what appears to be an email from Jaworowski addressed to Rajčić, dated October 9, with five paragraphs of what appeared to be answers to questions.Saopštenje redakcije povodom slučaja Tramp— Nedeljnik (@nedeljnik) October 13, 2016last_img read more
